I Am Liebster, Hear Me Roar


HEY BEERGUT!! has been nominated for a Liebster award! We are so very grateful to both Mancakes the Blog and Drinking Tips for Teens for the recoginition. It’s a pleasure to be in the virtual company of such fine bloggers and Liebster recipients as yourselves. If you haven’t already, check them out readers, they are full of awesomeness, insightfulness, and hilarity,  and for that reason, Cougar Approved!

Before we begin, us ladies at the Cougar Den want to thank the folks at WordPress for Freshly Pressing us this week.  It’s been a wonderful thing.  Wonderful because we got to hear from so many of you out there, and the number of likes we received really made up for the rather lack-luster turn out to our first annual Valentine’s Day “Like-In” that we hosted this year.  This bodes very well for Valentine’s Day 2014.  Please stick around for that party!  Thank you for dropping in, your thoughts, and your congrats.  We hope you continue to find content on this blog (not necessarily as deep as Love, Loved, Light) enjoyable. And now back to the program.

According to Liebster Legend, to join the ranks of the Liebster Elite the nominee must:

  • Thank the bestower and link back to their blog – check
  • Answer the 11 probing questions – see below
  • Pose 11 questions of your own, and nominate 11 other blogs with less than 200 followers, (or thereabouts), informing them of the exciting news by way of blog comment – see waaay below!

Not all cougars are alike, and because there are two of us here at the Cougar Den, and because we were both too drunk busy with our national Valentine holiday when Drinking Tips for Teens first nominated us, we will both, soberly, answer Mancakes 11 questions:

1- What book can you read over and over again?

Denmother:  Does the user manual for my dildo count?

Helen:  Finnegan’s Wake –  so fun, love that book!

2- If you were the new Pope what’s the first thing you would do?

Denmother:  Change the Pope hat up for a tiara and take the Pope-mobile for a spin down the Vegas strip.

Helen:  Salt Rimmed Margaritas in the Holy Chalice!

3- What’s your personal favorite post on your blog?  Please include the link!

Denmother:  When a Breast is a Boob – This one seemed to be a crowd pleaser.

Helen: I am most indebted to Brad Pitt’s Penis. It keeps them coming.

4- Complete this sentence: I have never, ever _________________________

Denmother:  gotten back together.

Helen:  seen the movie “Dirty Dancing.” Hard to believe I know, but it’s true.

5- Tell us a little bit about where you live.

Denmother:  In the shadow of the CN Tower, Hollywood north, just a stones throw from the birthplace of the Biebs.  Beliebe it.

Helen:  In the majestic mountains of British Columbia, surrounded by giant spruce, raging rivers, and people that regularly wear socks with sandals.

6- Donald Trump offers you $1,000,000 cash to have sexy time with him…just him, no threesomes.   Would you do it?

Denmother:  Would I have to touch his weird hair?  Then no.

Helen:  Yes, but only so I could “accidentally” yell out OH BARACK in the throws of fake passion. And for the cash.

7- We are making a movie about your life; who plays you?

Denmother:  Cher

Helen:  Meryl Streep, NO – WAIT, Beyonce!

8- What’s the title of the movie about you?

Denmother:  Fashion: One Step Forward, Fifty Steps Back

Helen:  WTF?  The Musical

9- If you owned a mega yacht, what would you name it?

Denmother:  Yacht-zilla

Helen:  Sweet Action

10- What the hell is wrong with Lindsay Lohan?

Denmother:  Dinah Lohan

Helen:  Michael Lohan

11- Are we there yet?

Denmother:  Got here three days ago.  You just enjoyed the ride so much that you have no f-ing idea.

Helen:  I doubt it

Blaze of Glory

(100 words)

Instinctively she gripped the door frame.

One lamp crashed to the floor and exploded into a fiery ball.  The other fell onto its side, igniting itself and the paper towel.

Everything continued to violently shake.  The lamp shifted, allowing the agitated spice cart to emerge from behind the flames and launch itself off of the table, adding to her sensation of featuring in a Hollywood blockbuster.

California was about the furthest place she could have moved them away from her mother-in-law.  After she survived this quake, she couldn’t wait to tell her about the spectacular death of her tacky gift.
